    Paradoxical Southeast Asia
    Paradoxical Southeast Asia

    In Southeast Asia, a space characterized by intense regional and global traffic networks since the sixteenth century, the architectural landscape is often seen as a palimpsest of styles. The hybrid and syncretic nature of Southeast Asian architectural forms is seen as the result of the successive waves of contacts that marked the history of this part of the world called by some the "Asian Mediterranean." (F. Gipoloux). In this genealogy of architectural types, the colonial(...)

    Dynamic Vernacular
    Richard Hughes, Krapf-Rebmann Memorial Church, Kilifi, Kenya (c. 1956)

    This issue takes as its subject the relationship between modernism and vernacular architecture in the colonial and postcolonial world.  It explores this relationship as a dynamic between modernism and the vernacular, rather than in the more familiar and uni-directional form of modernism’s appropriation of vernacular forms. That this coming together had as much consequence for the vernacular side of the equation as it did for the modernist side, is often recognised but rare(...)

    Revêtements céramiques
    Ornemental tiles
    Edificio en la calle Alférez Sanz, n.º 2, Melilla, Francisco Hernanz (arquitecto), 1935.

    Le champ des arts appliqués, dont l'étude est en plein essor, est un domaine très vaste qui peut être considéré dans son entier, les différents arts appliqués concourant à l'oeuvre d'art totale que deviennent parfois les intérieurs, mais aussi approchés selon les différents métiers. Ce numéro entend mettre en lumière l'étude du carreau céramique et du carreau ciment, comme revêtement de sol et de mur. Les travaux pionniers de Robert Saliba, Beyrouth architecturesAux sour(...)

    Transnational Studies and Cultural Transfers
    Rome, 1930—Manifesto of the first formation Atlantic flight

    This section of ABE is devoted to new models of exploring transnational architectural practice, and collects papers given at the Conference "Crossing Boundaries: Rethinking European architecture beyond Europe", held in Palermo (Italy), on 13-16 April 2014. Although European architects have worked beyond Europe since the time of the Crusades, the attention of historians of modern architecture has focused upon either colonial architecture or the work of exiles from fascism.

    Socialist Networks
    Supermen, poster by Roman Cieslewicz, Paris, 1968.

    This issue of ABE focuses on the internationalization of building culture after WWII and the contributions of architects, planners, and engineers from socialist countries to these processes. Complementing the studies of colonial and postcolonial links, international organizations such as the UN, and economic globalization as conduits of the world-wide spread of architecture, this issue discusses the intersection of these networks with flows of labor power, materials, techn(...)

    Ingénieries innovantes ?
    Innovative engineering?
    Couverture de la revue Béton armé (avril 1933)

    L’objectif de ce numéro est double. Il entend d’une part mettre en lumière la richesse des ressources offertes par les archives d’entreprises conservées en Europe pour l’étude des architectures européennes « hors les murs », dans la lignée d’une première exploration de fonds d’archives engagée à l’occasion du projet européen Building beyond the Mediterranean: Studying the archives of European businesses, 1860-1970 (Claudine Piaton, Ezio Godoli, David Peyceré, 2012). Il vis(...)

    Global experts “off radar”
    Henri Jean Calsat presenting his project for the new Brazzaville hospital to French officials, early 1950s.

    Recent scholarship in architectural history testifies of an interest in a new type of professional which emerged in the postwar era, at a time when new international agencies emerged and a development discourse focusing on the Global South was on the rise. Travelling architects and planners turned into consultants consciously marketing their expertise in a worldwide arena and becoming what some have described as “global” or even “nomadic” experts. While well-known names su(...)

    Colonial today
    Poster created by Gaelen Pinnock for the campaign to save the Werdmuller Centre.

    Across the world, colonialism produced a substantial built legacy that in many cases continues to mark post-colonial urban landscapes. This theme issue addresses the ambivalences surrounding the position of colonial architecture as heritage in the present day, questioning the common assumption that architecture produced under colonial rule constitutes, by definition, a “dissonant heritage”. Presenting cases that highlight the myriad ways in which colonial architecture is r(...)

    Corporate patronage
    The Dining Hall/Auditorium viewed from the side and showing the chajjas that wrap around the doors.

    This volume of Architecture Beyond Europe examines the term “corporate” and its possible relationships to empire and architecture. In so doing, it considers not only the common usage/conception of corporate as a descriptor—i.e., the commercial dimension—but also its wider and more basic definition, particularly as it applies to organised groups or “bodies” of agents acting for reasons of common purpose. In some cases this went beyond the motivation of purpose to include th(...)
